4 stars Some maybe confused... Nobody ever said that Styx is a progressive Rock band in the same way we mean about Genesis or Yes. Styx is a prog related band and they are listed in that catalogue correctly. So, why we see one or two stars for this album , this is a mystery to me. Grand Illussion is one of the very good albums of the 70's with songs that stayed fresh through the years (Come Sail Away or Fooling yourself). Styx is or was a band mixing a good dose of hard rock, arena rock or if you like radio friendly rock and until a point of time they were using quite many elements of progressive music but just leaning there and never got more closer. So, we should be judging with more wide horizons , all right? Someone said that Castle Walls is a filler?...ha,ha,ha...
